Community Mental Health.

ELWELL, RICHARD

Collapse Box

Abstract

Community mental health programs are shaping a new system for delivery of mental health and psychiatric services. To provide the compehensive, continuous care which is the aim of such programs, a coalition of health, social, and other agencies is required. Nursing involvement in planning and implementing programs, in administration, education, and community organization activities is essential, says this author, if a total system of community services is to be developed.
